F5-125  F5 – Administering BIG-IP - V11 - nanforiberica

This two-day course gives network administrators, network operators, and network engineers a functional understanding of the BIG-IP® v11 system as it is commonly deployed in an application delivery network. The course introduces students to the
BIG-IP system, its configuration objects, how it processes traffic, and how typical administrative and operational activities are performed. The course includes lecture, hands-on labs, interactive demonstrations, and discussions.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Getting Started with the BIG-IP System 
  • Traffic Processing with LTM 
  • Secure Network Address Translation (SNATs) 
  • Traffic Management Shell (TMSH) and Managing the BIG-IP System 
  • Monitors, Network Map, and Configuration State 
  • Profile Concepts 
  • Session Persistence 
  • iApps Concepts 
  • Basic BIG-IP Troubleshooting 
  • BIG-IP Administration 
  • Overview of Other BIG-IP Products (GTM, ASM, APM) 
  • Enterprise Manager (EM) 
  • High Availability Concepts 
  • Rules 

At the end of this course, the student should be able to:

 

  • Start/restart, license, and provision the BIG-IP system; 
  • Use the Configuration utility and TMOS Shell (tmsh) to manage BIG-IP resources such as virtual servers, pools, pool members, nodes, profiles, and monitors; 
  • Create, restore from, and manage BIG-IP archives;
  • View resource status, availability, and statistical information and use this information to determine how the BIG-IP system is currently processing traffic 
  • Perform basic troubleshooting and problem determination activities including using the iHealth diagnostic tool, researching known issues and solutions on AskF5, submitting a problem ticket to F5 Technical Support, and viewing traffic flow using tcpdump; 
  • Understand and manage user roles and partitions; 
  • Operate two or more BIG-IPs as part of an N+1 high-availability configuration; 
  • Use an iApp to deploy an application service;
  • Describe the role of Enterprise Manager in BIG-IP system administration and operation 
  • Describe how traffic flows through LTM, GTM, ASM, and APM 
  • Describe the role if iRules in affecting traffic behavior
